«The West End of Europe»

...is in Portugal. «The West End of Europe» is where you are a spectator in the theater of nature, watching how the sea is forging a coast of both remarkable wilderness and beauty.
Filmed in April 2014 around Nazaré, Carvoeiro and Sagres. Shot mainly in 4K (UHD) with a Panasonic GH4 and a bunch of modern and vintage lenses. Then edited in a 1080p timeline in Final Cut Pro X. Some grading with Filmconvert. Music with a licence of Premiumbeat.com.

The West End of Europe from Joerg Niggli on Vimeo.

Das «West End» ist das Theater-Quartier Londons. Jenes von Europa liegt meiner Meinung nach in Portugal. An seinen Küsten wird man ein gefesselter Zuschauer einer Szenerie, in der das Meer die Küste formt. Die Aufnahmen wurden im April 2014 um die Orte von Nazaré, Carvoeiro (Algarve) und Sagres gemacht.
Die Kamera war eine Panasonic GH4. Fast alle Aufnahmen wurden im 4K-Modus (UHD) aufgenommen und im Schnitt in Final Cut Pro X auf die HD-Breite runtergerechnet. Das Grading erfolgte mit Filmconvert. Die Musik stammt von Premiumbeat.com.

Piazze d'Italia

After weeks of shooting, rendering and editing «Piazze d’Italia» is finally going public. The video featuring 45 piazzas (squares) all over Italy was shot in spring and summer 2013 mainly by me and Edoardo Cicchetti. With additional shots of 6 other time lapse photographers I’ve edited this vast collection of material to the beautiful soundtrack of Paolo Fresu, the well known Italian trumpet player and composer. The video was produced by Mikaela Bandini of Can’t Forget It(aly) for the Italian State Tourism Board ENIT. This long version of the video as well as two short versions are part of the 2014 «Made in Italy» campaign aimed at european travelers.
